I have been on the phone today with the NJ/Ny NRA Field rep and we discussed this in depth.
Great work by NJ2AS but I think there is one misleading bit of information here. IndentoGo is not run by the NJSP. They are a privat contractor that bids on Govt. contracts to secure a contract to supply services to the State of NJ. As such, It is my belief that Murphy sent word that the contractor was to deny Firearms Fingerprinting as a retaliation to the Trump mandate to allow Gun dealer to reopen as essential business.
That being said - it would not be in the NJSP juristiction to tell a private business to 'reopen". I will assume it came from the AG's office
This came in via email couple hours ago. Hopefully (at a minimum, private) ranges will be next.
"Just 18 hours after we broke the story about the NJ government keeping the fingerprint system closed, it appears NJ State Police backpedaled on their position and are now allowing IndentoGO to process fingerprint appointments for firearms."
